    medium vs spiritualist

    Hello,
    Can you tell me what is the difference between a medium and a spiritualist?
    As well I believe ' spiritualist' comes from 'spiritualism'
    How about medium? Is there a general word for description of what a medium does?
    Thank you in advance

    Re: medium vs spiritualist

    If you look up the words in several dictionaries at www.onelook.com, you'll find that there is no general agreement. The definitions in some dictionaries are very similar. In others, 'spiritualist' is defined as someone who believes that contact with the dead is possible; such a person is not necessarily a 'medium[, someone who acts as an intermediary between the living and the dead.

    You're right that spiritualist comes from spiritualism. Why don't you look at an online encyclopedia and find out what is meant by the terms?
